About the Artist
I most always work in a series. The pieces submitted in this application are all made from the same location. Living and working in the Hudson Valley of upstate New York I often spend months at a specific location in the fabulous landscape here that inspires me. For me, it is essential to be connected to nature. The landscape mirrors the range of emotions I experience, and it is a door to much of the spiritual meaning I seek. Working with this imagery, along with exploring the physical poetry and expressive meaning within the painting process, is the essence of these paintings. All pieces are painted plain air at their beginning and some are completed in the studio. Painted on panels, with oils, an extensive range of techniques are used, from heavy pallet knife impasto to glazing. All pieces are one of a kind, signed, and dated. Lives and works in Poughkeepsie, NY.
